Hockey Fights Cancer

Hockey Fights Cancer is a component of the NHL's "Biggest Assist Happens Off the Ice" campaign, the League's long-standing tradition of addressing important social issues in North America and around the world.

Hockey Fights Cancer is a joint initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League Players Association and the National Hockey League to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight.

It is supported by NHL Member Clubs, NHL Alumni, the NHL Officials' Association, Professional Hockey Trainers and Equipment Managers, corporate marketing partners, broadcast partners and fans throughout North America.

To date, more than $12 million has been raised to support national and local cancer research institutions, Children's Hospitals, player charities and local cancer organizations.
